The Criterion, situated in the heart of Piccadilly Circus, is an elegant and breathtakingly beautiful restaurant. Originally opened in 1874, the Grade II* listed lavish space embraces the Main Dining room, the semi-private Terrace area and the world-famous Criterion Long Bar, adding warmth and softness to the spectacular interiors. As you sit and lose yourself in the opulence of the neo-Byzantine architecture, it's easy to conjure up visions of the Criterion Restaurant’s glorious past.
Head Chef Artan Hasa has created a Modern European menu that is simple and luxurious, and it is our aim to source the highest possible quality ingredients from within the British Isles. We are a member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association and work alongside them to continually improve our sustainability. Our fish is chosen every morning from across the British Isles & delivered the same day to ensure freshness. Our meat is all rare breed, sourced from individual farms, free range and outdoor reared, hung for a minimum of five weeks and butchered on the premises. We make our bread and churn our own butter. We also smoke our own fish and make our own pasta, ricotta, ice cream and sorbet. Live music every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night from 7.30pm, add to the charming ambience. Come and discover this gem of history and timeless elegance for yourself!
Nestled in the heart of Piccadilly, Criterion has been heralded as one of London’s most spectacular restaurants, since it opened its doors in 1874. And true to the style and grace of the era, Criterion tops the billing for romance, and charm. The modern European menu changes with the seasons, while keeping true to classic British cuisine. The bar provides the perfect getaway from the madness of Central London; and if you’re looking for smaller afternoon bites, a traditional afternoon tea is served daily. And to complete the offering - every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday you can enjoy live music performances.
